I love the Race Red, but because of the color of red it is, anything else red just blends in, making the back of the car a big blob of red.

So I have done some things like apply 3M retroreflective vinyl to the ST badge so it pops, and smoke out the lower reflectors. The taillights I discovered were surprisingly simple to define from the rest of the red. There is a border around it that is red/transparent that can be painted on the backside to clearly define the edge of the taillight. I removed the taillight, masked the front of it, and painted the edge around the outside black from the back side. I used a 2k Acrylic Urethane, but other paints could be used. Popped back in and it looks like it could have been OE since there was no paintwork on the outside.

I can't say the red on red ever bugged me, but I'd do that if I had a red car. That looks really good!
